Thanks! Share it with your friends!


My Spamnix add-on module to Eudora works great and practically captures 100% of the spamI receive everyday. But, I still like to look at most of the daily crap I received .. and ..

You just have to laugh sometimes …

1) Email from:

>> From the Japan Lottery in Germany (.de domain)

2) The Winning numbers drawn June 8, 2006 = 9 0 9 16 28 28

>> That’s right – 9 picked twice, 28 also picked twice and the number zero and 16 only once

It must be one of those “New Age” lotteries…..
